NUS High School Wins 6 Gold, 9 Silver and 1 Bronze in Singapore Chemistry Olympiad

                                                                                                                        The Singapore Chemistry Olympiad (SChO) is jointly organised by the Singapore National Institute of Chemistry (SNIC), Chemistry Department of National University of Singapore and the Ministry of Education. The competition is open to JC 1 or equivalent students. It consists of a theory test and a practical test, each of approximately 3 hours, taken over two days.

The general aims of the SChO are to:

- promote an interest in Chemistry,

- provide an opportunity for academically inclined Chemistry JC students to pit their knowledge in Chemistry and spar against each other,

- identify a pool of students who are talented in the Chemistry discipline for training for eventual selection of a national team to represent Singapore in the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO).

This year we have the most number of students participating in the second round (15 out of 17 were selected) and the most number of students invited to phase 1 training for national team selection, including all gold and silver medalists.

NUS High School won 6 Gold, 9 Silver and 1 Bronze.
